I'm curious, for those of you who have had babies in the hospital during the first weeks and months, if you chose not to vaccinate, how easy it was for you to get the hospital to respect your decision. I feel like we won't get a lot of flack for refusing the hep b vaccine at birth, but as time goes by I worry that it'll be really difficult to hold our ground with other vaccines. I felt like I had done so much homework and really came to an educated decision on the subject, but I'm worried I won't be strong enough when I'm in a situation where I'll feel like a hospital staff is co-parenting. Even if I were considering an alternate schedule, which I have at times, I don't know that I would feel comfortable subjecting a little immune system to something as taxing as vaccines when he's already going to be fighting to repair himself after surgeries and such. I already know I'm going to be that weird mother with all the quirks (use my chlorine-free diapers, don't use your chemical-laden soaps and lotions on my baby's skin, fragrance-free eco wipes only, please! And if you run out of breast milk please make sure you use soy formula for his g-tube - we're vegan!) and I'm sure once I start rocking the boat with the vaccine issue it'll be met with some resistance. I felt confident with the idea of standing my ground with a pediatrician, but a staff of nurses who I will be seeing for hours every day...? I anticipate it being really hard. Any advice on the subject?
